Replacing the random normal vectors by the random normal matrices and Wishart variates, in this paper, we investigate interconnections between the independence of linear forms, quadratic forms, trace forms in matrix normal distribution and Wishart distribution. We show that the Craig-Sakamoto theorem still establishes the independence of both two linear forms and two quadratic forms in matrix normal distribution, but it fails establishing the independence of two linear forms and two quadratic forms in Wishart variates.</p>}, journal={REVSTAT-Statistical Journal}, author={Tao, Jiyuan and Kong, Lingchen and Su, Zhihua and Wang, Guoqiang}, year={2024}, month={Jun.} }
